One of the best !

My favourite trail. Short and sweet.

A short climb reveals breathtaking views of the Barron Canyon. Most of the short hike is along the clifftop with lots of spots to sit for awhile and enjoy the view!

Amazing views, well marked trail + booklets (to borrow or keep for $0.50. In French or English), and not difficult (non-hikers could do this!)

Quick and short ascension with the most insanely gorgeous Lookout!!! I would do this Trail every single day if I could! Stunning views from the top, truly!
Advice 1: We took up the incredibly comprehensive “trail guide” with us (offered at the trail head - either reuse it or pay $0.50 to take it home) and it was soooo informative. A mini geography/geology lesson mixed in with our short hike, and we loved it! Always cool to learn more about history of the hike you’re on, and it made it last a little longer!
Advice 2: bring a picnic up with you, there are several sturdy/comfy benches to hangout at (and/or boulders), the bugs weren’t too bad, and you can watch people canoeing/kayaking through the river below!
It legit felt like a scene out of Pocahontas or something - amazing!

Short and sweet; the views down into the canyon are awe-inspiring and the surrounding forest lovely. Watch out for little kids that they don't get too close to the edge.
